    Default Wiper Blades: The rubbery bits

    I wanna change the rubbery bits on my wiper blades cause I hate the Pug ones. They are new but still streaky. Yes, Ive had them adjusted.

    Anyway I bought some once that totally did not fit. What a waste of money.

    What I want to know is what kind of wipers you use especially on a 206. Are they genuine pug blades or another brand?. I did a search and one guy recommended trico.

    if i get teflon coated ones will they give me cancer?

    The Trico Teflon ones are good, only for a short term, they are quiet but once the coating is wearing out it'll be noisy.

    Since they moved the factory from australia to china I started banning it so I gone back to get some Bosch MicroEdge wipers, they are great, noisy every now and then but much better quality and lasting longer I think.

    If you have a CAMS license you can get the bosch refill blades for $3 only at Burson Autoparts !!

    Just remember that many of the pug baldes are 7mm not the standard 6 or 8 therefore go for the 8mm ones and spread the blade tracks --- yr stuffed if its plastic though.

    If you have the wrong sized blades then they become noisy

    I just picked up some generic ones for my 205 from autobarn. Alls you have to do is cut them to suit your wiper blade length.

    Other then that mine work perfectly, and I haven't had a problem. I can't see the reason in buying anything more expensive but i'm sure someone will give me a good reason.


    Oh yeah, by the way, if you bought some one size fits all generic wiper blades then you have to cut them to suit the length of your actual windscreen wiper

    Default Try EAI

    European Auto Imports in Boxhill have the correct inserts for the OEM Valeo wipers.... They certianly fit better than generic ones do.

    Alternatively you can buy any complete wipers for $10-20 from Autobarn/BigW/Supercheap and then you wiill be able to use the generic refills as well next time... Just get the correct length and they come with a large selection of mounting clips to connect to the wiper arm. You can even get the Aero blade ones like lots of Pugs have on the drivers side if you want

    Cheers

    For my 206 I bought 6mm bades & still had to bend the clips out a bit to get them to fit. Took about 20 minutes to get them in, the fitting was way too tight.
